Re: state marching every year
Budgeting for SMC every year in a small school means something else has to be sacrificed to participate. At one time I HAD taught in a school that had a separate budget for all groups that progressed beyond regionals. The travel expenses didn't eat my lunch. It was ideal, but not all small schools have that kind of mentality or funds. In my last job having SMC every other year allowed me to buy needed instruments in the off years. It was a fact of life and the reason I am not in favor of SMC every year.
